mystery spring perennial

jessebird(5 ON Canada)May 7, 2008

I need help identifying this flower. It has tubular white/yellow flowers with celery like foliage. I posted an image on the test forum but can't seem to be able to post it here. Please look at the image under mystery spring perennial. Thanks.

I looked at the picture of your plant and I think it is corydalis lutea. Marg

It's Corydalis nobilis. Lovely flowers. Here's some cultural info I found for you:

"Corydalis nobilis
Zone 4 ~ Height: to 50cm/20in ~ Sun to part shade, average soil --A central Asian corydalis that produces dense heads of light yellow flowers with dark lips above clumps of deeply divided blue-green foliage. Because it goes dormant after the seed ripens, it is an excellent plant among deciduous shrubs and late-developing perennials, providing spring interest and then conveniently disappearing into dormancy for the rest of the season."

"A rather large corydalis forming clumps of beautiful blue-green ferny foliage 1 - 1 1/2 ft. tall and wide. Spikes of flowers in early spring are bright yellow with a purply-brown spot at the tip. Relatively short lived, but seeds about dependably in a friendly way. Edit out older plants after they set seed, allowing for new seedlings to take their place. Best with partial shade and regular to moderate water."

Happy growing!
